  • Trip introduction

    The trek to Beaskund is a 4 day trek that takes you to the glacial lake of Beas, with views of surrounding peaks such as Shitidhar and Friendship Peak in the Kullu region. You'll trek past slow avalanches rumbling in the distance, through wide open valleys between peaks, where mountain streams dot the landscape, up to grazing meadows where shepherds bring their flock to graze on the sweet grass. You'll also witness hanging glaciers and camp out in the wild. But the emerald-green Beaskund is the highlight of this trip, with its serene environs and open skies above.

    The Beaskund trek is an easy grade adventure, suitable for beginners, but is also good for experienced trekkers looking to gain altitude in a day's trek.

    Destination

    At an altitude of 13,120 feet, the Beaskund is one of the best treks in the region to get you high into the mountains in a short time. The lake is fed by melting glaciers, and is cold and misty and green. It is said to be the meditation spot for Sage Beas, and you'll remember the peace and silence here for years later.

    Destination highlights

    • Trek through high altitude meadows of grazing sheep and meet friendly shepherds
    • Spend some time at the serene Beaskund
    • Spot iconic peaks like Deo Tibba and Shitidhar from your campsite
